This was bad investment of my time. Its about making pro’s and con’s lists. The ideas behind the book is thin and it endlessly elaborate on common sense practicalities.

Too many principles to remember. Sometimes less is more. Also found the principles to be common sense thinking and nothing I wasn't already familiar with. I have studied this area before though, so it may be a better read for new people.

Take the test free before you listen to this book. It's included, but you'll have to ask for the code. Go to the TalentSmart website, select the Contact tab, then under FAQ is a question on how to get the free test code for purchasers of e-books. Follow the directions and they will quickly send you the code.

I would like to find out how to acquire the code to take the EQ test that is mentioned in the listen. The rest of the book is a bit useless without the test.
